I just upgrade it to 512 RAM ( 512 / 2 for cache_mem = 200 ) right ?

Setting now is at cache_mem 200 MB
cache_dir ufs var/log/spool/squid 8500 16 256

cache_swap_lo 90
cache_swap_High 95

Only have around 15-20 Concurrent users, How would you know the RAM is not
enough ?
I don't know why it s eat up until 2000 MB it won't response anymore when
pinging the pc.
Below is the usage status.
